You saw the concept arts, now see Harley-Davidson two planned radical electric motorcycles in flesh. They are unnamed still, though. As previously reported, there’s one moped-like motorcycle for the city and a scrambler-like model designed for off-road, or go anywhere, to be precise. Man, I am so digging the moped-like electric two-wheeler. It looked absolutely dope. The fact that it does not even look like a motorcycle is what makes it so rad.
The announcement was made at CES 2019. So, yeah, everyone is flocking to CES 2019 to debut their wares, motorcycle makers included. Speaking of CES, the legendary American bike maker also threw out more information on its first ever electric motorcycle, LiveWire. It is confirmed that LiveWire will have cellular connectivity.
While the technical detail of the motor is unknown, Harley-Davidson said LiveWire’s “H-D Revelation” powertrain enables it to make 0-60 in under 3.5 seconds with a twist of the wrist and the “high voltage battery” offers around 110 miles range. Also made known is, it has two ways to charge: standard overnight charging via any standard household outlet and fast charging via any public Level 3 DC Fast Charge station.
Other noteworthy details include cellular telematics connectivity powered by Panasonic, powertrain-below-battery configuration for lower center of gravity, lightweight cast aluminum frame, full adjustable SHOWA front and rear suspension, H-D/Michelin Scorcher Sport tires (180 mm rear, 120 mm front), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control, and state-of-the-art 4.3-inch full-color LCD touchscreen display.
